12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Pale yellow pour with a fizzy white head (what would Stone think?). Aroma of light citrus, faint Belgian yeast, pine, and grapefruit. Mild bitter hop flavor mostly masked by the bitterness from the yeast. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strong citrus smell of grapefruit and spices with a complement of lemon in the aroma. It was straw colored with a thick, white pillowy head. It has a strong, taste of grapefruit blended with spices. It leaves a tangy twinge of lemon on the palate on the way down.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy straw golden with a pillowy white head. The nose is great, with nice yeasty wheat bread tones along with some piney and grassy whole hop cones. The taste is nice and full with a wheaty smoothness in the background, leaving a wee pale malt sweetness to back up a resinous grassy and piney hop flavor, and some orange peel. Very smooth and delightful.

Bottle. Nice looking, light golden color with a big bright white head that clings to the glass quite impressively. Thereís a light citric aroma. The beer drinks with a very even-keeled balance of acidity and smooth, light malt. Very drinkable. (#5321, 11/10/2013)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Aroma is grapefruit, floral, perfume, vanilla, earth, tropical fruit. Pours slightly hazy yellow with a large white head with great retention; decorative lace sheets the glass. Taste is citrusy, floral, earthy, tropical. Mouthfeel is creamy, body medium. Not bad, but I donít associate white IPAs with wintertime just because the word "white" is in the title. Itís much more of a summertime style to me.
